Photograph info: I took this photo today (Sunday) around 7:30 a.m.
I think the first week in June is my favorite time of year in Durham Township. (But don't hold me to that when the October rolls around, ha.) The warm air, the morning fog rising from the Delaware River, the intoxicating perfume from Japanese honeysuckle & multiflora rose (both invasive species, but it's hard to hate them right now) and the long days add up to heaven in my book.
Take that walk.
Camera settings and post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and the Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens with circular polarizing filter at 17mm, ISO 200, f/13, 1/125s. Curves adjustments. (The deep blue in the sky is from the circular polarizing filter.)
Thank you for visiting Durham Township!
Kathleen - this is simply beautiful. I love your work! By the way, thank you for following me on Twitter too!
That's a really neat photo! You can see the fog beginning to lift, but there's still enough of it to give it a mystical appearance. I, too, love the smell of honeysuckle this time of year. Thanks for the note on the filter, I was wondering how the sky could have been that blue with the fog still present.
Holy Smoke, Kathleen! (OK, Holy Fog!) It's not a photo, it's a vision. I feel like Hemingway after he read "West With the Night." I'm ashamed of my camera. Think I'll give it a good whacking. Wherever the "thank you, Kathleen" count is, up it by half! (....still looking for the brush strokes in the sky, in that tree, in Ed's corn.)
Alternative Comment B: Oh Wow!
Wow, such a beautiful shot. Feels very heavenly in fact - just like the long days :)
This is the kid of images I would like to make :-) This is beautiful!
It's a nice composition ! A like it with a lot of sky. Nice colors :)
I have not seen a picture like that since I left the farm and boy did it bring back memories to me. Thanks for the trip down memory road.
This is what country life is all about! I love this photo. Your work is so inspirational!
Lovely shot...I especially enjoy the fog rolling through the background.
So beautiful and serene landscape!
it's like a dream. great landscape and such a beautiful sky ;-)
It's so peaceful. The only sound is of the corn quickly growing
Or maybe the grass in the field that soon will need a mowing.
The coolness and fog of this early spring morning
Helps ready the earth for the long summer and it's warming.
Always great photos but your shots recently with vertical composition and lots of sky, clouds and fog are wonderful. They remind me of the English painter William Turner. I saw his paintings in London years ago and your photos strike me the same way.
Gorgeous shot and I really like the use of the polarizing Filter, very well done.
Another beautiful shot, this is lovely and soft, making it feel warm, the clouds look like they have been sponged in by an artist. Really inspiring work.
Wonderful mood and quality of light in this image. I enjoy much of your work but this one forced me to comment. Great work!
The fog.. the light.. the composition...
.. just wonderful! Such a beautiful capture, this is.
You are blessed with early morning mist!!
This is magical. The mood is uplifting.
Fantastic colors and framing!
Love the mist and clouds blending together.
Your work never fails to inspire and delight. This is magnificent but, then again, which one isn't!?!
Interesting that you split the foreground image down the middle yet assign the role of "compositional binder" to naught but air and mist, which form the upper chunk of a subtle tripticalistic division of elements with Mr. Tree taking the role of "anchor dude"......but are we not in the realm of "interesting stuff?" (Also a pretty mystical image for just corn....anybody actually ever SEEN this "Ed" who manages to shroud his crop in such a magical way? Mmmmm?
Esa niebla que poco a poco se va apoderando de todo a su paso, me encanta el punto de vista.
This is a beautiful image, really lovely colours here.
Isn't it interesting how timing is everything? Ten minutes later and you would not have the same mist and light. This was great timing and a good reason for rising early.
Nice work, I would like to see some old houses when you get a chance!
your photo which appeared on the Strike-the-Root blog of June 14 is the best picture I have seen put on that site and I've been reading said for 2 years. Nice to see genuine talent, for a change.
Like most of your shots, Kathleen - awesome! Great stuff, I really like your work
And a lovely walk at that. Awesome photo site, we thank you.
But where are the grazing deer?
Beautiful landscape capture! The composition with the split foreground, the mystical feeling and the colours. Perfect. This is my first visit and your pictures are absolutely fantastic. Thank you.
Great composition with that wide, deep, prominent sky.
Well Kathleen, at this rate, the mid-ground foliage will be protected old growth forest before we get a knew..... I''m just say'n......
A morning walk in the fog can be a mystical and uplifting start to a new day. This shot is so inspiring!
Love this image. Love how you captured the gentle roll of the land, the green, the mist, the blue sky, the clouds. I agree with you re. multiflora and japanese honeysuckle.
This is really lovely. Almost symetrical and the lines really lead you into the image. Lovely light.
I loved the evocative feel of this shot, made me think of civil war battlefields for some reason. Now that is not peaceful but the landscape of itself is not warlike. The corn (Ed's) gives a feeling of hope, expectation of reaping a good harvest.
